The Ruby Apple

Updated on March 3, 2011
Source



she plucked the ruby apple


from the enticing apple tree...


took a great big bite before


the worm had time to flee...


mmm mmm delicious!

      attemptedhumour, yes, you are right...eating fruit in the dark is risky business indeed! although, the eater of the ruby apple, did so in broad daylight...she was just Hungry! lol...thanks for the read and lovely comment!

      No more eating fruit in the dark for me. This was a sweet little rhyme with a distasteful amen.

      No_Clue - A good surprise and it was found in a good poem. Enjoyed it and, for that, I thank you.

      Oh dear - memories return. Worms do not taste good. Cute, short and sweet! I'm smiling and that is worth a whole lot!
